Genetic Testing

Methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase is an enzyme that converts the folate you eat into the active form that is then used by your body. This test determines if you have a mutation in this gene and therefore are not converting properly, affecting how much active folate you have available. Active folate is required for a huge range of functions in the body, so there are many signs and symptoms of folate deficiency. Please ask your practitioner for more information on this complex topic.
